Fort Dodge Police warn of counterfeit prescriptions

The Fort Dodge Police Department on Tuesday warned of an increase in counterfeiting of prescription medications.

In a release Tuesday, the department said there has been an increase in production of “designer drugs” intentionally made to pass as authentic prescription drugs. These counterfeits may contain narcotics or hazardous ingredients.

“Any attempt to obtain prescription medications through means other than a licensed doctor or pharmacy could pose a risk of serious bodily injury or death,” the post warns.

If you come across prescription medications or substances that seem suspicious or dangerous, contact the Fort Dodge Police Department or your local law enforcement agency.
